Landlords’ worst nightmare – well, almost! I am a landlord with a conundrum. A year ago, the freeholder of our block of flats sold the freehold of our car parking forecourt/garages that surround our block. For forty years the 21 car parking spaces have been free and the garages to rent.
The new freeholder wants us to rent the parking bays and has a company merrily issuing tickets for “fines”.
As leaseholders on the flats, we submitted to Land Registry a UN1 to put our right to parking” charge” on the title of the new freeholder, who has now submitted a UN4 to lift our charge.
We have provided evidence and await the Land Registry decision but have been told that, even if Land Registry decides in our favour, we still do not have the right to free parking.
Anyone understand this?
We have also been told we have the statutory right to buy the forecourt from the new freeholder as we should have had first refusal on this land but were never offered it at any stage. I think this is done via Land Reg’s AP1 but wonder, if we submit one at this stage, whether it will hold up the charge decision?
The first we knew about the sale was when we received a letter from the “fine” issuing contractor telling us charges were about to be introduced.
Anyone with a view/advice on all this?
And we have very little money to throw at the legal side! We have been doing it ourselves so far.
